Chatham County meets to discuss budget

Posted: Updated:

It's a familiar refrain in these tough economic times; trying to do more with less.

Chatham County is facing its biggest challenge in years since the once a decade local options sales tax negotiations took a big bit out of the budget.

County commissioners heard from staff today to find out how much money they need for the next fiscal year.

"We have a budget constraint, you know, so you can only do so much in certain areas," said 8th District Commissioner Priscilla Thomas.

Chatham County's fiscal year starts July 1.
